? >>> tonight, across gaza, people are being told to flee their homes by the israeli defense force. they're trying to find shelter. arwa damon has the story of what it's like on the ground. >> reporter: this is the first family we came across. barreling down the road. all they knew was that they did not dare stay at home. we left without knowing where to go, she tells us, cradling her 4-month-old. they could hear explosions as they fled. what caused the mass exodus was the israeli army dropping leaflets, warning residents in certain areas, they needed to depart immediately for gaza city. and the leaflet even indicates specifically which routes they should take to stay safe. and though few believed the israelis, leaving was a better option than staying behind. she says, their house was hit a few days ago. this is the second school they have actually gone to, looking for a safe place to stay. but it obviously was full, as well. and now we're going with them to try out a third one. it's already packed. people angrily move benches, staking their claim. there is another school, a young man ge
's national defense headquarters. a spokesman for the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says this is a terrorist act. this as 100 israeli air strikes have killed more than 27 palestinians. the death toll in eight days there up to 137. the secretary of state hillary clinton is finishing up those direct talks this morning with the palestinian authority president mahmoud abbas. that's happening in ramallah on the west bank. and netanyahu, the prime minister, in jerusalem, another conversation she's having. now she goes to cairo where she's meeting with the egyptian president mursi. mrs. clinton making it clear that she is not interested in a quick fix in gaza. >> the goal must be a durable outcome that promotes regional stability, and advances the security and legitimate aspirations of israelis and palestinians alike. >> cnn reporters flanking the middle east today to bring you the most comprehensive coverage of the crisis in gaza and in jerusalem and in israel. ben wedeman is in gaza city. frederick pleitgen is in ashkelon city. we begin with sara sidner at the scene of that bu
dome, and other u.s.-israeli missile defense programs. i'm sunling that that is something that the u.s. as well as the israelis certainly were talking about to actually bolster that defense system. >> it's worked rather well so far, that iron dome. it's israeli developed, but it's funded, in part, in large part, by the united states to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars so far. as part of this package deal, it looks like the u.s. is making a further commitment. the president of the united states to the prime minister of israel. that funding will continue, and the israelis have been pretty grateful about it. when i spoke to the israeli president shimon peres this morning, suzanne, he said that there would be a lot more israeli deaths, a lot more israeli injuries if it wasn't for this iron dome system that the u.s. has helped israel with in terms of funding and some technology development, and he was grateful to the united states. he was very profusive in his praise of president obama, and when i said to simon peres that it was only a few weeks ago that mitt romney, the republ
a third were intercepted by the iron dome defense system. this attack, a bomb, a public bus around lunch time, not far from israel's military headquarters. the blast wounded 24 people, added a new urgency to efforts to reach a cease-fire. the military wing of hamas tweeted to israelis, you opened the gates of hell on yourselves. 40 minutes after the bus bombing, our cameras captured this explosion in gaza city. all the while there was a flurry of diplomating activity. secretary clinton met with palestinian authority mahmoud abbas in the west bank and benjamin net ya knetanahu in ca. let's go straight to fred pleitgen where sirens have been going off earlier. and joining us is ben wedeman in the gaza strip, gaza city. fred, what are you seeing now in ashkelon? >> reporter: >> from ted pleitgen, have the rockets stopped in ashkelon? >> reporter: the rockets, yes, have stopped in ashkelon. it was interesting, because up until about a minute before our broadcast began, there were still booms that were heard in the sky. and about ten minutes ago we had to run for cover in ashkelon. now it app
lieberman didn't see eye to eye with the defense minister who was leaning towards accepting this draft proposal sent by hamas via the egyptian government. so once it was clear that those efforts had sort of run into a brick wall, we saw an intensification of israeli air strikes and of course rocket fire out of gaza as well. one of the rockets, rather, one of the air strikes hit very close to the hotel where many journalists are staying right on the coast right next to the gaza city beach. now most recently within the last hour the house of a senior adviser to hamas, prime minister ishmael hamiya was hit and killed. as you mentioned, the death toll has now reached 139 according to palestinian medical sources. at the moment, it's relatively quiet, but unless there's real progress broke towards a cease-fire, we may just slip back into this exchange of fire that we have been seeing now for eight days. >> at the moment it's quiet. let me ask you, though, about the leaflets that are dropped from the sky from israel to basically warn civilians in gaza as a heads-up. look, we are sending a mis
seeing about possibility violations? >> reporter: hi, wolf. yeah, we're hearing from the israeli defense forces that there have been at least two minor violations of the cease-fire. they're saying that at least two rockets were fired out of gaza. the information that we're getting is that these rockets either landed in an unpopulated area or in fact were intercepted by the iron dome missile defense system. of course we've been talking about so much over the past couple of days, by and large however it appears as though the cease-fire is holding. skies over ashkelon at this point in time are very quiet. however, wolf, one of the things you're not going to be seeing is what you just saw in arwa's report is people celebrating the cease-fire. in fact, we've been speaking to people here in ashkelon and some of them say they're actually quite disappointed because they don't feel that their military has gotten the job done yet or that the leaders were giving the military enough time to get the job done. let's listen into what one man had to say. >> not only myself, many people here, many friend
. the interesting reason they did that is because they had this missile defense system set up. it knocked down about 90% of the rockets that hamas had sent him. that is the issue of the iranian nuclear program. before the election, the big question was, will israel bomb the iranian nuclear plants. i think israel has allowed itself to still have that option available to them. connell: that option is available to them and they have the election coming up. >> in january. we are at a very interesting point now in the middle east. dagen: and credible insight, always. happy thanksgiving. connell: good start to the hour. a lot of important stuff going on around the world. then we have this hostess story. they could not reach a deal with the union. the company looking to move ahead with the shutdown. you are talking about 18,000 people out of work. dagen: blackberry dumped by the government this time. they say the blackberries keep failing. an unacceptable rate. what if they held congress to the same standard? connell: steve cohen, one of the big names. he is now at the center of an insider trading case. ch
the reaction from the streets of egypt. president morsi in his own defense says, "hey, actually, i'm defending the revolution because there's been so much obstruction that i need these powers just to run the country until there's a new constitution in place." plausible argument? >> it's a plausible argument, but i think for the transition it's a dangerous one. essentially, what you have is the transition process that's worked in a very bad fashion since the beginning hasn't produce aid consensus. it has 100 people who are supposed to be writing the constitution and it's dominated by islamist. the non-islammistes were threatening to walk out, not cooperating. so what morsi did yesterday was to say, okay, you can't challenge that process. and i think instead of making it so those people come back to the assembly and really buckle down and write a consensus document what, it's going to do is harden positions, so those people who are outside of the process, those people who are a minority in the constitutional assembly are just going to pull out of it entirely, and the whole process is going to be

? >> they met about two hours with netanyahu, the defense minister, foreign minister, national security team. they spent two hours, the statement released by the state department says she was briefed on the israeli position of all issues. she wants to see a deescalation of what's going on, she uses the word a calm. they are avoiding the word cease-fire for right now throughout the day, there is speculation coming from hamas and egyptian officials that they were close to a cease-fire. israelis downplaying the possibility. saying they weren't there until they actually had an agreement. no agreement, and if anything, it looks like there was an intensification of the shelling of southern israel today by hamas and an intelligence fiction of israeli attacks in gaza, witnessed by what happened to you guys what you saw over the past hour or two in gaza city. the negotiations will continue tomorrow, hillary clinton as you point out, going to ramallah to meet with palestinian authority leaders and going to cairo to meet with mohamed morsi. i wouldn't be surprised based on what i'm hearing if there is
provoked this completely. israel is acting 100% in self-defense. i feel a little happier if the obama administration were more precise about that and not play the game this is a situation where we have to de-escalate everybody. there is only one side that needs to be deescalated, that is the palestinians. if they continue to do it israel will invade them and have to take matters into their own hands and try to destroy hamas. >> greta: which would be catastrophic to many palestinians. according to the state department when secretary of state hillary clinton met with prime minister netanyahu to talk about this topic about de-escalate. tell me how you think -- what is that conversation? >> i can't imagine. the conversation about deescalation, has to be with the palestinians. i don't know what she would have been saying. don't let them bomb you and don't respond? it's absurd. it's again part of this moral equivalency we've again been going through 20 years in the way we deal with this which only encourages hamas. they are further encourage by the muslim brotherhood running egypt, morsi wh

,000 in bribes to a british defense ministry official over a seven- year period. brooks has been a close confidante of mourdock's as well as a friend of british prime minister david cameron. in a separate incident, andy coulson, a former editor who once served as scammers spokesperson, is also facing bribery charges. he and brooks already face criminal charges stemming from the scandal that led to the shutdown of murdoch's news of the world tabloid last year amidst revelations executives and reporters conspired to hack phones and intercept communications. four people -- two u.s. citizens and two permanent residents -- have been arrested on charges of plotting to join al qaeda and kill americans overseas. the fbi says three of the suspects were detained in california last week while the fourth was seized in afghanistan. they are accused of planning to meet without, militants to carry out attacks in afghanistan or yemen. dozens of undocumented college students marched tuesday to the office of kansas secretary of state kris kovach to demand he focus on his state level job instead of the ant
dome and other u.s.-israel missile defense programs. the bottom line is that is the key here because, as you know, iron dome has been what has been enabling israel to defend itself with all these rockets from gaza raining down. so the promise of even more u.s. aid to grow that system was a big sweetner here to get the prime minister along, trace. >> trace: ed, the president has a complicated relationship with the new egyptian president. >> that's right. president morsey, a member of the muslim brotherhood. there has been lot of weariness about his leadership. bottom line, you will remember a couple of months ago during the campaign, the president said that he wasn't sure if egypt was now an ally. you see secretary clinton was there today though sitting down with president morsey. he has been an important part of getting us to this point. showing some leadership so far though republicans like lindsey graham have trend to cut off u.s. aid to egypt unless he steps up even more. today senator graham, two others republicans said -- put out this tough statement saying, quote: we urge pres

, in terms of the military supplies, the security, there is no is really, not the defense minister, the prime minister, none of the people who complain about obama as putting pressure on israel, none of them disagree with the fact that obama, the obama administration has been the most supportive administration of any on a level of strategic and military cooperation. when you look at this war in comparison to 2008, there was nearly unanimous support for israel. all of the senators, members of the house were saying, israel has got to defend itself. and when the israelis wanted the united states to go in and help for the cease-fire, the secretary of state what they are despite the fact this was not a prior issue. the issue is can the united states support israel, and at the same time be an effective a broker that takes arab interests into account? that has been the issue. it is not the level of support. host: richard, fla. on our line for independents. caller: it has been said that the muslim brotherhood has the same goal as al-qaida in the sense of wanting to establish a radical islamic governm

's a defensive weapon, it's a band-aid. it doesn't solve any problems. it just defends the israeli lives, which is, of course, a big deal right there. >> absolutely. let's go to egypt, everyone, for the country's new president winning heavy praise for helping broker the truce between israel and hamas. jim, this was an all-important test of u.s.-egyptians relations following the arab spring. what's the grade? >> well, the grade is good. better than good. you have to be cautious, of course. you're talking about the middle east. but i think that it's remarkable, alex, really, to see the kind of praise that president morsi is receiving. even in those defiant speeches that ayman was referring to, hamas leaders, islamic jihad leaders, benjamin netanyahu's comments last night, secretary clinton's comments last night, president obama's praise, everybody has good things to say about morsi, who has now emerged not only as a can-do politician, but a power broker in the region. for instance, when the truce deal needed to be closed and clinton came to cairo, she spent hours with morsi and with his foreign m
, hamas, with the missile defense system, would it work? and it did. this was something president obama initiated in israel. was there really going to be daylight between israel and president obama? absolutely none. so iran going forward had to think, do i want to take a chance on there being any daylight going forward? it was a test here. incidentally, they thought would egypt advocate the peace treaty over this? it didn't happen. all the things forecast during the campaign were put to a very specific concrete test. and every claim that governor romney made was absolutely shown to be unwarranted. >> okay. i'm supposed to go, but i'm going to give you 15 seconds to respond. >> as of today, richard is correct, but the jewish population supported romney. he must have believed that romney was better, but it is done. the presidential race is over and hopefully the president can broker real peace. real republicans need to stand behind him and hope he's able to do that. >> happy thanksgiving. >>> here at home the american thanksgiving tradition is in full swing. up next, we are live at the ma
a pass on the fiscal cliff. home builders, gold stocks big gainers this week. defensive names, cyclical stocks are the biggest gainers on the week. dow is up 2%. we also see s&p 500 sector gainers. this is all the risk-on trade. materials, tech, energy, financials, there's your classic risk-on move and for the week the dow is up 2%. s&p up maybe 2.3% for the week. my sense is that this is going to last another week and a half to two weeks. you have a grace period where they'll let them negotiate. if we get into the week of december 10th, everyone feels we better get some outlines of what will happen. if there's not the obvious -- we're not going to have a deal, it is going to move down very fast. i think we have a period of a week and a half here. >> we'll be watching. thank you. >>> the announcement of the cease-fire. did that lead to selling in treasuries? rick santelli is tracking the selling at the s&p. >> definite talk on the floor has been almost universally about the cease-fire and a lot of thought as to why the market and treasuries didn't really respond much. you could look for
of this. it proved that its iron dome missile defense system could protect vast areas and could shoot down the majority of hamas rockets. and one of the things it's going to get out of this from the united states is additional help in providing more missiles for iron dome so that it has even a greater range of protection. so the dynamics are changing a little bit on both sides. both sides can claim victory. but neither side can win militarily and both sides know that. >> you just brought up iron dome. you also brought up hezbollah, which brings up the question of iran here, another major actor, maybe the key actor in opposition to israel in the region. if you're iran and you just watched this for the last ten days, what do you take from it? >> well, that israel does have means of protecting itself. it does have this new iron dome defense capability. i'm not convinced that iran actually, if it is developing a nuclear weapon, has the intention of using it against israel. but what it -- what the bigger question really is would hezbollah and neighboring -- in a country that neighbors israel us
no need to respond. in other words, israel's whole military operation here was purely defensive. if they hadn't had been shooting at us, we wouldn't have had to call up our reserves and hit at gaza. we will be very happy if we can have a status quo, if the situation can be quiet, and if the civilians on both sides of the frontier will enjoy a period of unprecedented peace and quiet. >> if all does remain quiet, we're hours from that second round of negotiation, really on the most contentious issue, those very tight border crossings in gaza under this 7-year-old now embargo. what makes this time, what makes this round of negotiations any different that before? >> you know, any where over the last two, three years, israel has been relaxing restrictions. we'll continue to that process and now talk to the egyptians about that. but israel imposed restrictions for a reason. you had this hostile fire into israel. they were shooting rockets into our cities and trying to kill our people. is it really fair to expect that you would have normal trading relations -- >> but if that does stop,
